The Magic of Vitamin C

Simple miracles.

Simplicity brings balance, freedom, and joy. It’s an interesting paradox, how we often over think and over analyze when we’re looking for a solution. Going into our minds, we often miss the answer to our problems in its sheer simplicity.

Vitamin C is one of those solutions. A humble supplement, not boasting an unpronounceable label or expensive price tag, Vitamin C is debatably the most recognizable supplement on the market. Available in a wide variety of pills, tablets, gummies, powders, and sprays – if you could only supplement one thing, I would probably suggest this citrus powered powerhouse. It’s a simple and singular solution for so many problems we may face.

It goes a lot deeper than treating colds and viruses. Vitamin C has an arsenal of healing powers and wide variety of benefits.

Where else can I get Vitamin C?

Pretty much every fruit and vegetable on the earth contains some amount of vitamin C. The most concentrated sources are:

  • Strawberries
  • Citrus fruit
  • Papaya
  • Bell peppers
  • Kiwi
  • Black current

One way you can amplify the vitamin C you absorb is to get direct sunlight on your skin when possible. The sun strengthens and enhances the absorption and function of every single nutrient, vitamin C included!
